This post is actually for @dimaks13 - it looks like tire is keeping together with wheel from left and right side ...

 

Sadly LEGO dominant tires are still balloon tires :sad:

One day :)

note that some of the pinholes are occupied but this is just because of limitations of current parts which I used to make the 'concept parts'. They should really be not occupied however.

Also the axles that are inline (but not perpendicular to) with the pin holes should be slightly longer to equal 1L.

You cannot have an axle in-line with a pinhole. There's no room to connect the two.

You can have a pin in-line with a pinhole, because there's a small ridge in pinholes. The current 3L pin with bush makes use of this, and I think it would also work with a pinhole instead of the bush.

Other than that, I think we have enough pins for now. Adding ever more such parts would only confuse the matter, I think. I'd rather see a few new thin liftarms :)

...or liftarms with even number of pin holes, like liftarm 1x8?

That's a really cool part. It gives a whole new dimension to the term "wheel cover" and "rim".

You can, using a little trickery :classic:: the notches on the end of a pin are half as thick as the recess in which they snap into, so you would fill the remaining half with plastic which supports the axle.

I think you're adding where you should be subtracting. On the left of the attached image is your suggestion (gray is the shape of a pinhole); on the right is its cross-section, which, as you can see, proves that your part falls apart into 2 separate parts.

Remember: axleholes don't have this recess, only pinholes do, so axles can't have ridges. Check your axle pins :) It would work with a pin, and to be honest, a "pinhole-with-inline-pin" would be a nice part to work as a "pin extender" of some sort. In fact, I drew this on my "wish parts" brickshelf folder in 2009 :)

But to be honest, I still think that with all the recent small parts, the Technic pin collection feels rather complete now and has now come to a point where I think it shouldn't be extended further.

Oh, I see now, yes I was confusing myself.

I ran into this problem actually and the only way I can see to fix it would be to put a vertical support bar which would fit into the horizontal slit in pins. this bar would support the embedded axle or pin:

another hybrid part solution is just to have a 1L pin or 1L axle with a 1L bar inline with it but those dont fit in the bar-holes of some types of pins.

Since its the year of frames, I always anticipated LEGO release a "half frame" part. I believe this would open a world of simplification and space saving.

I agree, that is something that I miss very often and end with clumsy solution that uses to much space

Something like this but without the ball socket. LEGO Beam Frame with Large Ball Joint (92910)

I have used these f(without modification) for making caster steering units with success.

A half frame would be very useful.

I do not know if it has been answered before, but does anyone know in which set(s) black axle 3 with stop is coming from? There are several on BrickLink on sale

https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=24316&idColor=88#T=S&C=11&O={"color":11,"iconly":0}

Thanks

Several? I count six in total. They would most likely be either painted, or printed by the person who's got them, or maybe they just forgot to set the color correctly when adding it to their inventory.

I mean several sellers. Carsten thank you for rapid answer. :sweet:

Like they often do my Micro Motor stopped working so I decided to open it up and see if I could fix it.

After rotating the rotor to confirm the gearing was fine I noticed the magnet has started to deteriorate, the surface was flaking apart and blocking the rotor.  Used a small knife to scrape all the flaking magnet off until the rotor spun freely.

Using 2 staples in a rubber to hold the brushes in the base open I put it back together and it works fine.

Has everyone seen the 2019 City set images ... new Technic parts ... a Wheelarch in Dark Blue  possibly the same shade as the Boss Crawler ? ... and on the new Space sets the space station has a "docking ring" that has Technic pin holes

The dark blue wheel arch is 13 studs long so it is the one from Porsche 911 RSR

The City set has a 15 stud one from Chiron. I doubt Lego would release two such simillar parts in same color.

I apologize for ma' mad paint skillz. How is it that there is no part like the one above yet?

I have checked it again and you are right, the front of the shop is 16 wide and the arch is 0,5 stud shorter on both sides

I can't remember every having come across a need for that part (3 x 2 T beam). I have come across the need for a 3 x 2 L beam various times though. Where the 3 x 3 T beam didn't fit, and the 2 x 4 L beam is too long.

But in the end, I was always able to find a solution using existing parts.

There is another part I would like to have though. I can't count the times I wished it'd exist.
